    This is what I have heard:

    Softreset for a shiny starter, and after every badge you will need to hunt 1 shiny and catch it.

    That sounds like fun. =) I'll give it a whirl. It fits right in with my catch all pokemon before I move to the next area theme.

    You don't actually have to go for a shiny starter in a badge quest, it's just that people often like to.

    In my Leaf Green BQ I didn't get a shiny starter... I found a (first of many, it turns out >.>) shiny Rattata.

    1700 eggs hatched now, still no shiny Staryu. I guess if I don't get it before December I'll switch over to Lapras for the community hunt.

    It appears my Black version has given me an early birthday present.

    My birthday is tomorrow, and I decided to clear out some backlogged Drilbur eggs that I put in the PC a month ago. I was clearing them out so I could try for Porygon again.

    Well, a few moments ago, on the 192nd egg, an Adamant female Drilbur hatched! I had planned on a male, but considering the circumstances, I'm very happy.

    Congratulations on all recent shinies, and good luck for ongoing hunts.

    Reminds me of when I told cocoa to hatch his remaining Totodile eggs, and one was shiny.

    Also, you and your luck! Two in one day. I'm half-hoping I catch up soon! Where are you planning to hunt in your BQ?

    Alright I really hate softreseting. I might do a couple of thousand random encounters just to get the shiny feeling back, dang that is addicting.

    Just a quick question here before I do anything I might regret, which legendaries are required for the national dex/shiny charm?
    I don't really feel like SR'ing for shiny legendaries without the shiny charm, but if I need, say, Reshiram and Kyurem to get the charm, then there would be no point waiting any longer before catching them.

    Might also add that I've reached 100 eggs for my taillow hunt and I also have another 30 or so eggs in my boxes that I will start hatching once I fill another box. It's not a lot, but I don't have the time or patience to hatch 100+ eggs every day

    You need every Pokémon to obtain the shiny charm, except for the event ones.

    Wow, a lot of posts to read since I went to sleep. Not many shinies though, which kinds sucks Good luck to everyone on their hunts! Hoping to see more shiny news in this thread =)

    Also, to the newer followers, don't forget to check the OP. There's a bunch of useful information in there like what a BQ is, and the problems with SRing in R/S/E in case you had targets there.

    I will hunt in a decent location for the CH. I hope we get 25 shinies as a community in December!

    Can you guys recommend me some places to hunt for an Ice-type? If all else fails, I'll do something else...

    Meanwhile, I calculated that spending 2-and-a-half hours a day hunting on Platinum would get me 500 REs in one day. Neat, huh?

    1,100 REs.

    Dylz made a little list for B2 a page back, the highlight was:
    Giant Chasm Innercave which has Piloswine, Sneasel, Vanillish & Delibird

    I'm actually hoping we get one every day of the month without chained shinies though. Chaining is one of those things where if you get the knack of it, you can just pump out shinies pretty quick. (man, I wish I was good at it >.<)

    Thanks for telling us to check the original post, bit more informed now

    So can someone just clear this up for me?

    You can walk about in areas thousands of times till a shiny appears,
    you can save I front of a legendary or poke that can be seen and soft reset till its shiny

    Aaaand this Matsuda method?

    I'm new to Pokemon black / black 2?

    How would I achieve that? Or breed a poke tbh haha full stop!

    @Syrrume - Masuda method is breeding 2 Pokemon from different language games to increase the chances of the offspring being shiny. It cuts the odds from 1/8192 to something like 1/1600 in B/W.

    I'm not sure what you're asking, but hopefully this helps:
    for REing, all you're doing is wandering around and encountering pokemon until you run into a shiny. No skill involved, just a lot of patience.
    SRing legendaries: yes, you typically save in front of the legend and then reset until it is shiny. but the overworld sprite will not indicate if it's shiny, you have to engage in battle to check.
    masuda method: use the GTS and get yourself a foreign pokemon to breed with one of your own (i like going for Japanese or Korean OTs, because the characters are so different from English letters) then its just hatching eggs until you hatch your shiny
    I don't remember when the GTS opens up, but I think it's pretty early into the game, so MMing in Black 1 can be done pretty much right away. Black2, the daycare is only accessible after the E4, so you have to wait a while before you can MM
